Designing and implementing the Cradle to Cradle Circular Economy

  • Innovation
  • C2C Circular Economy
  • C2C Certified

We work to develop, implement and verify the transition towards a fairer and regenerative economy, for all.

Innovation

Creativity is seeing what everyone else has seen, and thinking what no one else has thought.

Albert Einstein

Net Positive, beyond Net 0

We believe that no impact is not enough. We need to become positive to the planet and people. That is why our Net 0 strategy for business is so innovative and broad:

  • Net 0 Emissions: achieved not only but energy strategies but also by material’s selection (taking into account the embodied energy), systems design, full life cycle assessment, among others.
  • Net 0 Toxicity: by C2C® criteria on material’s health as well as circularity potential
  • Net 0 Waste: designing buildings and products to be perpetually cycled
  • Net 0 Risks: we manage risks (both regulatory and reputational) by circular passports (detailed inventory and characterization) that allows the identification and planned management of potentially problematic substances and the like.

Circular Carbon Cycle Assessment, C3A®

As W. McDonough says: “Carbon is not the enemy”. Since climate change became a global issue, it seems that Carbon is the only one to blame and phase out. But no Carbon, no Life.
We work on the development of a new assessment methodology to understand the impact of decisions in the carbon cycle by measuring it according to the principles stated by W.McDonough in “The New Language of Carbon” (2016 Macmillan Publishers Limited, part of Springer Nature).
Collaboration with Politecnico di Milano and Demetra.

Lean2Cradle®

Is the tool created by EIG in collaboration with Construcía that allows users to design, build and manage C2C circular buildings. It combines the benefits of Lean Construction and Cradle to Cradle, to create healthy and perpetually cycable spaces that will become material banks.

Circular Passport

We identify, characterize and create the digital inventory of buildings, products, and any kind of system. Our circular passport includes a set of metrics that enables the impact assessment of buildings and products. The Circular Passport is integrated in a resource management platform that includes a marketplace, this means that all materials and products can be traded at the end of their use cycles never becoming waste.

Value to Business Tool

C2C Circular decisions and strategies influence the assets value. We help you understand how by calculating the financial performance over mid/long term periods.
Collaboration with Impact Perceptions.

L2C True Value

L2C buildings create value to society and nature. We joined forces with KPMG Netherlands to adapt their True Value® methodology and understand the value generated -or reduced- by our buildings to society in financial terms.

Resource Management Platform

Circular economy needs traceability, new spaces and markets to recirculate materials. Our Circular Passport works together with Upcyclea’s traceability and resource management platform making the retrieval of value possible.

Regional Activation Programs

Understanding the resources and actors of the system, its strengths and capabilities is essential to make a scaled and real change possible.
We help design and implement the change through the stakeholder’s consensus and commitment. From training to action.

C2C Circular Economy

If you want something new, you have to stop doing something old

The Safe & Circular Products Program

The Cradle to Cradle Certified™ products program assesses products and helps design their optimization path towards safety and perpetual cyclability, based on five quality categories.
We work with companies of diverse sectors around the world to create products that make a positive difference.

Safe & Perpetually Cyclable Products

The program helps to optimize products to achieve true circularity.
It classifies products by their recirculation path; either Biological Nutrients (back to the soil to enrich it) or Technical Nutrients (back to the industry as valuable materials)
It has 5 achievement levels.

The C2CPII manages the certification program and watches the use of certification marks.
